We have important excavations to conduct!
Meet my “partner in crime,” Serena.
First, we must fortify ourselves with treats. Do you have any carrots or dog biscuits?
Life is good! Mama Bear is responding to training well.
We usually dig a hole in the middle of the puppy pen first.
You should always start with a warm-up.
Then we move into the shade. What’s this here?
Mama Bear has been filling our holes with rocks.
Good going Serena, now we’re getting somewhere!
Woo hoo! Go Serena, go!
Something got away! Do you think it’s over here?
Time for a power nap…
We are growing up to be big puppies. Soon we can walk on leases.
This is the fruit basket that Papa Bear used to carry me in.
There are two things that I do when the weather gets hot. First, take a nap.
Puppies who take power naps grow up big and strong!
Second, cool off in front of an air conditioner. Aah! That feels good.
Here I am sharing a trumpet vine flower with Serena. Not!
Cousin Natalie holds me in her lap. Serena is to big for that. Too bad, Serena!
My sister Serena has long legs, and she is starting to use them.
She can already reach the table-top. Whoops! What have we here? Blackie the cat. Serena wants to climb on the table, too. Why can a black cat go up there and a black dog can’t? Not fair!
She knows how to use her paws, too. Ouch! I’m gonna get you back for that!
Oh no! Serena took my stick. Hey! Give me back my stick!
Now Serena has the water bowl. Hey Serena, bring it back!
Uh oh, she’s found the trumpet vines!
Leaping Serena. She loves to eat trumpet vine flowers for a snack.
